The splendour surrounding the estate is accentuated by verdant landscapes and winding pathways of majestic oaks, hedges, flowering camellia trees and poplars, introducing the residents and guests to manicured lawns, shrubs and flowers that run with the natural rhythm of the pulsing Spaanschemat River. Calls from the nesting birdlife harmoniously filter through the rustling reeds growing along the edges of the estate dam, while busy bees work side by side with the gifted groundsmen to self-propagate the prettiest of flora found within the labyrinths of the Country Garden and Manor House Grove.
The homesteads at Silverhurst Estate harmoniously blend with the visual language and architectural style of Cape Vernacular aesthetics, drawing on the cultural and historical context of the traditional Cape Dutch settlements found in the heart of the old Constantia Valley.
Varied design styles on the estate support unique expression, while marrying a rich tapestry of architectural influences synonymous to Edwardian, Georgian, Neo Classical and Victorian design styles, core to the overall preservation of Silverhurst Estate’s prestige. Houses within the various precincts echo these stylistic traits in terms of proportion, scale and detail while addressing the individual needs of contemporary, modern day design.
The simplicity of unfiltered country estate living combined with the serenity, security and luxury of comfortable, beautiful spaces summarises the very essence of Silverhurst Estate, providing residents with greener pastures and an undisputed arcadian lifestyle.
By scale, Silverhurst Estate is much more boutique than most country estates, without the complications and bustle of too many onsite amenities, offering a more exclusive sense of sophistication. With 78 individual homes ranging from a quarter of an acre to a full acre wide, you’ll be able to enjoy the comfort of your own home while still being close to all the world-class attractions and amenities the area has to offer.
